I am quite sure the rates will be comparable to other 5 star hotels in the area such as the Taschenberg Palais and Suitess. Both are over $500. per night. Not very affordable, but the experience will be memorable for sure.

Interesting to me how the German mentality is to maintain the international aspects of their past--the British hotel in dresden, the Englischer garten in Munich, pariser platz in berlin, etc--but the British changed most of their German heritage aspects to anglo names or terms.

however, I have been reading elsewhere the British hotel was actually named Palais Beichlingen in former times, and the new name will be Stadt Palais Hapimag. Anyone able to confirm this? thanks!

This happened everywhere. The Czechs changed the names of entire towns. Německý Brod (German Brod) for example is now called Havlíčkův Brod, whereas Uherský Brod (Hungarian Brod) wasn't renamed.
In Germany the Nazis changed quite a lot of names to erase the Slavic past of some places, but most names were restored after the war.

The house was built by count Wolfgang Dietrich von Beichlingen and called Palais Beichlingen back then. The names of these palaces changed quite often. I don't think however that they will change it to Palais Hapimag. People wouldn't accept it.

Don't want to threadjack, but the name "Havlíčkův Brod" undermined plans I had a few years back to visit Německý Brod, the birthplace of Johann Stamitz (Jan Stamic), perhaps the greatest symphony writer of the 1750s and the driving force behind the Mannheim School of orchestral performance. I'd never imagined that the name Německý Brod would've been changed, since it's already Czech (unlike, say, Karlstadt). Anyway, didn't get to make a pilgrimage to the hometown of a truly history-making composer.

So, is the building going to be called the British Hotel for sure or is there a debate on its name? The opening is scheduled for 6 months from now.

Wow!
Just amazing! This must be one of the most beautiful houses built in Germany since 80 years or so!

So sexy... Possibly my favorite reconstruction on the Neumarkt thus far.

Does anyone know which architecture firms are responsible for designing and handling the restoration of this project?

There are several. Each quarter or even some singular buildings are done by different operators.

The minute I saw the British hotel plans I knew it would be one of the best recons. That facade is incredible.

I don't think these updates have been added yet:

Rampische Straße:

I still totally despise that modern piece of crap with the grey roof (Innside Hotel) that's halfway along the street.

agree, the Innside Hotel design is sadly in conflict with the appearance--historically and current--of the reconstructed Rampische Str. Unfortunately, when interests are at odds and city decision-makers opt to "split the baby" in hopes of providing some satisfaction to everyone, mistakes are made.

the good news is the core structure is there and the facade can be somewhat easily changed down the road with, hopefully, new owners who want to integrate more.

It's totally foul. I wish they'd had the balls to actually put something ultra-modern there instead of that. The compromise has ended up being the worst of all possible options.

agree, the attempt at looking comtempory with old world lines is like putting mint jelly out plus a beef steak and pretending it's a lamb chop.

The other part is the name. InnSide? The play on words is more appropriate for Disney World than the Neu Markt.
